  Jo Ben's 1529 "Descriptions of Orkney"


Hara is another parish in which are many slothful drones, and on this account called the Sheipies of Haray.

Here is a large church dedicated to St Mary, commonly called the Lady of Grace, concerning which the people relate many fables.

To this place many flock together from the different islands.
